Platinum blonde hair color is blonde hair that is reduced of its bright pigment into a shade that is cooler, like ash, silver, metallic, and pearl. Platinum color, like on rings you wear, will have a similar shade on hair and can be made darker or lighter to match preference and skin tone.

Platinum blonde hair dye is a highly-coveted shade of hair. While blondes can be found in all parts of the world, only 2% of the world’s population remains a natural blonde as an adult. The evolution of light hair is related to the body’s synthesis of Vitamin D. Lighter hair and skin allow more sunlight to trigger the production of Vitamin D, which explains why more natural blondes are found in Europe and other sunlight-deficient areas.

#1: Contrasting Platinum Highlights on Dark Blonde Hair

Platinum highlights on dark blonde hair help add dimension to your hair. Perfect for blending gray, adding brightness, or getting dimensional pieces. Platinum highlights look great on dark blondes that can lift light enough. I love customizing a platinum blonde to fit my client’s needs. Not everyone wants a high-maintenance, all-over blonde.

#2: The Best Platinum Hair Color

If you want to have a bright and radiant look, think about getting the best platinum hair color. This hair color stands out with ultra-light and icy tones, adding elegance to any hairstyle. Platinum blonde suits people with fair or porcelain skin tones as it beautifully contrasts and complements lighter complexions. To get the ideal platinum blonde shade, talk to your hair color expert and consider lightening your hair to a level 9 or higher. Don’t lighten your hair less than that, as it could give an unwanted orange or yellow result. Lightening your hair more will help you get a beautiful and noticeable platinum blonde color.

#8: Beautiful Platinum Inverted Bob

Go for a beautiful platinum if you wear an inverted bob and want to change your style. You must consider a few factors if you want to put your tresses through this process. You must have little or no permanent color already on the hair. And it must be in pretty good condition to lift as high as it needs to. Find a way to moisturize it with the correct hair products and weekly masks.

#9: Full and Thick Platinum Cut

Here’s a full thick platinum cut. One of the best ways to kick off a summer countdown is with a full head of highlights. Ask for highlights and tipping out through the ends for maximum brightness.

If you’re searching for a timeless and versatile hair color, try a classic platinum blonde. This shade is perfect for those who want a bold look without sacrificing chicness. The hue is cool and icy, making it ideal for those with fair or cool skin tones. To achieve the perfect platinum blonde, ask your stylist to lift your hair to level 10 with bleach and toner. This will help achieve a bright, near-white shade. Be aware that being this blonde means regular appointments. And it’s best kept up with purple shampoo or conditioner.

#11: Perfect Platinum Curls

Here’s a perfectly curled platinum style. If you’re looking for mermaid hair, extensions are perfect for you. Try a halo at first for easy removal, and down the road, try some hand-tied wefts. They are ideal to add weight and length to the hair. And they can be easily color matched by an extension specialist.

#12: Platinum Grey on Medium-Length Feathered Hair

Iced ash hair is the perfect look for someone with tanned skin, not only because of the natural grey hue but also the shadow root, which provides dimension and depth. The wispy ends create movement, making the color look more voluminous and natural. This look can be achieved by using a level 10 lightest blonde and shadowing with a level 8 light blonde at the root.

#13: Shadow-Rooted Platinum Hair with Wispy Layers

Shadow-rooted platinum hair with wispy layers is a beautiful look. It combines several different key color elements. The roots are a few shades darker than the platinum ends, giving it a subtle, natural look. The wispy layers and soft waves create maximum volume and movement. If you decide to get this color, using a professional colorist is important. Platinum hair is difficult to achieve and requires expert care.

#14: Platinum Blonde with Violet Highlights

A platinum blonde with violet highlights is an incredibly striking color combination. The cool tones of platinum blonde complement the vibrant hue of pink/violet. This creates a unique look. This type of color can be achieved fairly quickly for those with dark blonde hair or lighter. But you’ll need the help of a professional colorist. Always use a color-protectant shampoo and conditioner to maintain the pink/violet highlights. It will require touch-ups every couple of weeks.

#15: Melted Buttery Blonde with Lighter Ends

A blonde with lighter ends is the perfect tone to create a natural-looking blonde. Blonde hair with dark roots is very on-trend and can be customized to any skin tone or hair length. Buttery blonde requires less maintenance than icy or cool shades of blonde. But it should still be well maintained for the best look.

#17: Ice Blonde Tones on Light Brown Hair

Ice blonde tones on light brown hair are a girl’s dream! Adding in accent silvery tones can bring life back to your solid color. Adding soft waves is a great way to show off your new dimensional blonde. Try an inch-and-a-quarter curling iron for that effortless wavy style. I recommend Paul Mitchell Pro Tools Express Gold Curl Titanium Curling Iron for an amazing professional-grade tool.

#18: Icy Grey on Tousled Short Hair

Try an exciting hue of icy grey on tousled short hair for a fun new switch-up. The darker your natural hair is, the ashy tones are best. If you struggle with warmth, I recommend using blue-violet shampoo in your routine. Try Loma’s Violet Shampoo. Using a violet shampoo twice weekly will keep your platinum locks this icy.

#19: White-Blonde Curly Bob with Bangs

A white-blonde curly bob with bangs can be a difficult task to achieve. However, this look can be a show-stopper with the right stylist and tools. It’s important to understand bleaching curls can be a delicate matter. So please gently lift the hair and pick the appropriate shades of platinum to help you with your skin tone. A blonde bob with a natural texture is beautiful. But it will require a good hair care routine with lots of treatments. A once-a-week hair mask can maintain integrity. My favorite is the Davines Love Curl Mask.

A bixie platinum blonde is a nice look for women wanting to make a fashionable, modern statement. It’s a perfect combination of light and dark.

This look is best achieved with a professional colorist. It requires a precise application of color to create the desired effect.

An icy silver with black roots can be difficult to achieve. However, this stunning contrast is a fun way to transition to a high-contrast blonde. Platinum blondes or cool tones work well with a cool dark brown or blue eye color. Be sure to incorporate leave-in conditioners into your hair care routine. It will give your hair added moisture. For extra care, a serum after your hair is styled is recommended.

Trying a platinum dark blonde hairstyle is ideal if you want to go light without the gold or brassy tones. This chic color job is a fun way to play with platinum hair. I would be sure lowlights are mixed in to allow the platinum to pop. Using toner in the dark ash family can deepen the hue while allowing some reflection. You can try toners with blue and violet tones for the best results.

#28: Silver Balayage Blonde Hair

Are you thinking of switching up your blonde? Try doing silver balayage on your blonde hair. Blonde shades can be a tricky thing to master. So consider trends like this to make subtle yet impactful changes. Your hair must also lift to the appropriate level to achieve soft silver tones. I recommend a powerful yet gentle enough bleach to do so. Try Wella Professionals Blondor Multi Blonde Powder to achieve lightness.

Tell your colorist you want a precision cut with minimal layering for maximum impact. To maintain your look, use regular treatments formulated for lightened hair. And deep condition weekly. For best results, try Fanola No Yellow Shampoo to keep your color cool-toned and vibrant!

#30: Platinum Blonde Balayage

Ask for a platinum blonde balayage at your next hair appointment. Once hair is lifted light enough, cool-based tones are added to neutralize the yellow. Great for those who are already blonde or those who have virgin hair. A platinum balayage is low-maintenance. And it may require a purple shampoo regimen for at-home care.

Pairing an edgy angled bob with a bright platinum blonde is a perfect match! Leave some natural or add a lowlight to make the platinum highlights pop. Style this look with a texture spray to show off the layers and dimension in color.

#32: Cool-Toned Long Platinum Hair

Ask for cool-toned long platinum hair for your next color. Perfect for level 7 and up, during a consultation, ask if your hair can lift to a light enough level. It is important to ask questions about maintaining bright blonde hair as it may require regular visits to the salon.

Platinum beachy waves are an incredibly wearable hair color that can look great on women. With a light, airy texture, these wavy tresses will make a statement without over-the-top styling. It’s gorgeous all on its own! To maintain it, use a weekly purple shampoo and conditioner. So you don’t end up with unwanted brassy tones.

#45: Lived-in Icy Platinum

This lived-in icy blonde is heavy on the bottom and gradually fades into the root area, giving it a cool shadow root for a lived-in feel. This look is perfect for the woman who wants to see a lot of blonde but doesn’t want the maintenance of heavily highlighted hair.

When requesting this color, I recommend you tell your stylist that you want to see lots of pale ash blonde, but that you want less in the root area. You’ll want the grow-out to be nice and natural-looking, requiring fewer root touch-ups. This color doesn’t require as much maintenance as a full head color but requires a toner refresh.

#46: Seamless Ashy Platinum Balayage

This is an ashy platinum balayage. I love going against the rules and mixing warms up against cool tones. It has contrast and dimension yet has a fluid hand-painted feel. My favorite tip when I balayage a client is to do some babylights foiled around the hairline, then hand paint the baby hairs over the foils at the end to get a seamless bright hairline.

#47: Healthy-Looking Pale Platinum

We are in love with healthy blondes! It can be difficult to keep the integrity of your hair when going blonde because of the process it has to go through. However, if you want to consider going lighter, there are many measures you can take for healthy locks. If your hair is already fragile, I would not recommend going this route! Otherwise, try using products at home, such as strengthening serums and protein masks, between your appointments. And ask your stylist for more at-home tips!

#48: Long Straight Platinum Hairstyle

Go for the lightest shade of blonde with long platinum blonde hairstyles. A cool-toned white color blonde suits light-skinned complexions with cool undertones. Toning with an ashy hue will allow your hair to look cool without any warm tones. Use a purple shampoo at home to keep brassy tones away and keep your ashy hue longer.

Spice up with this summer vibe platinum blonde color! A long wavy bob with a honey platinum blonde color is a stunning look if you’re up for a glowing and attractive new hairstyle.

#50: Long Platinum Hair with Short Layers

Get picture-perfect hair with long platinum hair with short layers. Platinum hair is extremely high-maintenance, so be ready for an investment of your time and money. Please expect some damage even if your hair is extremely healthy and your stylist is doing everything right. Doing at-home conditioning treatments and using purple shampoo is a must to keep your hair looking healthy and yellow tones away.

#51: Long Platinum Blonde with an Off-Center Part

Long hair with an off-center part is the hairstyle to rock if you typically favor a side part but want to branch into doing a center part. Going with platinum blond hair, if you naturally have a darker hair color, will create a dramatic contrast in your hairstyle. Blending your blonde in with either your natural roots or a colored shadow root will help keep that line of demarcation away, so it won’t look like you have to make a trip back to your hair salon after just a few weeks.

#52: Gorgeous Platinum Blonde Waves

Gorgeous platinum blonde waves look stunning. But, it’s only recommended to women who can keep up with this high-maintenance color. If you’re trying to achieve this hair color for the first time, expect lots of time and money spent at the hair salon. Also, be prepared for a little bit of damage to your hair. I recommend using Olaplex at home to help keep your blonde tresses moisturized. Remember to schedule a toning appointment every 4-6 weeks to keep your blonde shiny.

#53: Long Blunt Platinum Hairstyle

This long blunt platinum hairstyle is a classy look that will never go out of style. You will typically want to maintain your platinum with toning masks. Platinum can be drying to your mane, so remember to take care of your hair!

Blonde Wavy Bob Babylights

#54: Blonde Wavy Bob Babylights

This low-maintenance platinum will have you at the salon every seven to eight weeks to retouch any areas that need lightening and to perform a toning service to keep the color looking platinum.

By leaving some of the natural colors at the roots and around the face, it works on most medium to light-haired clients. It’s important to be cautious when lightening your hair. Fried blonde hair is just not pretty! A golden blonde or a coppery blonde might be a more suitable option for someone with very dark hair. At-home maintenance includes using Matrix SoSilver shampoo on a bi-weekly basis, too.

#55: Vivid Platinum Lavender Blonde

Consider platinum lavender blonde if you want to have fun with your blonde. The lavender will keep your platinum icy. You will be the envy of your friends once your wear this color piece. The fade-out will be gorgeous, so you won’t have to worry about anything!

#56: Platinum Colored Hair for Older Blondes

Platinum-colored hair for older blondes works great on naturally light hair or someone with a lighter natural gray base. It doesn’t look extreme if you’re already going grey, as it softens your overall look. It also helps lighten up the appearance of lines, and the grow-out is less noticeable.

#57: Multi-Dimensional Platinum with Lowlights

A platinum blonde with lowlights is one of the best multidimensional and modern colors. This hair color works best on cool skin tones and looks perfect on long waves to show off the color’s variations.

Platinum purple hair is the way to go if you’re looking for a more fashion-forward look while still keeping it subtle and professional.

#59: Beautiful Blonde with Crown Braids

#60: Hot Bright Platinum Blonde

A shadow root, bright platinum strands, and blunt cut ends make this platinum blonde look white hot! So, what now? You can go to your local hair salon and ask for this color and chop.

#61: Smokey Platinum with Dark Roots

Hairstylist Jessie created this smokey ash platinum blonde with plum-colored roots. I love the deepened roots with such depths and how it blends seamlessly into the platinum blonde. With balayage, it gives the woman a high-end look with less maintenance.

#62: Icy Platinum Pixie for Older Women

The icy platinum works with a neutral to warm skin tone. If there’s too much pink undertone or even too much gold in the skin undertone, it could wash it out. Sometimes what a guest thinks they want in hair color is not necessarily what will look best on them. I do a skin tone and face shape analysis before we decide on a look.

#63: High-Maintenance Platinum Silver

This platinum silver hair was created using the full babylight/highlight technique with Schwarzkopf’s Blond Me Bond Enforcing 9+ Lightener and 6% Blond Me developer. If you’re going for a silver or icy platinum, expect high-maintenance upkeep. The expectancy for a touch-up at the salon should be every 6-8 weeks for toner and 8-12 weeks for a lightening touch-up.

After lightening, I root-shadowed with Schwarzkopf’s Igora Vibrance 7-1 (added some lowlights with this toner) with lotion developer and toned/glossed with Schwarzkopf’s Igora Vibrance 9.5-1 and -11 and gel developer. I love using 0-11 for many of my icy silver-toned platinum. It always looks like an extra ash finish.

#64: Bright Platinum Blonde Highlights

This modern bold icy blonde texturized bob is very low-maintenance. Ask your stylist to give you bangs to frame your face with your new icy platinum blonde highlights.

#65: Gentle Golden Platinum

This golden platinum color is a gentle shade of platinum and complements many skin tones. Work with the underlying pigments in your hair. If you pull gold or warm tones, stick to those to complement your skin tone and make your eyes pop! This look works best if you want a more lived-in platinum look, so you don’t have to come in for a touch-up every four weeks. Instead, you can come in every three months.

Platinum blonde cornrows

#66: Platinum Blonde Cornrows

These intricate platinum cornrows bring out the style of the braids and are great for weekends or when you want to keep your hair away from your face.

This color requires a lot of care and maintenance, and it can damage your hair if not done correctly. Touch-ups for the roots are usually done every 4-6 weeks to guarantee great results. I recommend doing it in the 6th week to avoid extreme exposure and remove all the pigment.

#67: Trendy Dimensional Platinum Blonde

Go for an icy-dimensional blonde shade. It’s the result of the second session of color correction, so it’s still a work in progress! For women considering this look, find the right stylist willing to work with you during the lightening process. Hair this color usually isn’t achieved in one session unless your hair is already blonde. It’s important to remain patient during the lightening process to maintain the health and integrity of your hair.

#68: California Blonde With Dark Roots

This is a dimensional icy blonde with dark roots and bangs. The most important thing to remember is that this process takes time. You have to be patient! You’ll need to understand that the lightening process compromises the health of your hair the more we have to lighten it.

How you take care of your hair after this color process is crucial. Sleep with a mask on your hair once a week. Using Oribe Gold Lust Mask and bond multipliers like Olaplex are great ways to keep your hair healthy and bright.

#69: Zero-Elevation Icy Blonde Bob

Achieve a stunning zero-elevation icy blonde bob by going for a full head of fine foils weaved. This is perfect to go short with a platinum hue! Having a blonde as bright as this and a hair cut this length does require some maintenance. The color upkeep is every 6-8 weeks. A trim every 4-6 weeks is essential, as well.

#70: Pearly Platinum Blonde

This pearly platinum blonde has the perfect glimmer of color in the sun. Generally fairer, cooler skin tones look better with pearly platinum hair than warm or dark skin tones. However, confidence is the key to pulling off this look, not your skin tone.

Long & Relaxed Platinum Blonde

#71: Long & Relaxed Platinum Blonde

This platinum blonde is done on bleached hair and looks so relaxed and undone. To lighten your hair to this extent, your hair needs to be strong. For a blonde, a warmer skin tone is a great match. If the skin tone were cooler and pinker, I would adjust your hair to be less creamy and icier for a similar vibe. For color, this is a ‘global lightener.’ The hair is fully bleached out to the scalp, and a light, creamy toner was used to achieve the soft and slightly warm shade of the palest blonde.

#72: Icy Platinum Pixie

An icy platinum pixie is one of the best short haircuts for women. They’re edgy but can be soft as well. Also, as a lady who has worn a pixie in the past, it’s the most liberating of haircuts.

When dealing with a platinum shade, it’s beneficial to rotate in or combine, along with your protein moisture system, a toning shampoo or conditioner. There are quite a few brands that make excellent ones. Most women can pull this tone off unless, you have a ton of pink pigmentation in your skin. Because this tone of platinum falls between a cool and a warm tone, it becomes neutral. And because it’s going to be significantly lighter than most skin tones, it will usually create a beautiful contrast. The trick is to get it truly white.

#73: Warm Short Platinum

This is a warm platinum blonde asymmetrical bob. Asymmetric bobs are a popular style to create because it’s the best of both worlds — short in the nape and gradual length in the front.

As far as maintaining the color, deep conditioning is very important and always do hydration treatments to enhance the conditioning process. A great tip to keep that platinum color from turning brassy over time is a purple-based shampoo and conditioner.

The best thing about this dark brown to platinum color is the color melt near the top. The way the hair blends from her dark base to platinum ends is tough to accomplish, but as you can see, it draws your eye to see the dark base pop through with her hand-painted highlights without any harsh lines or spots.

For women considering this color, keeping your natural root color can make maintenance more minimal. To maintain this color, try Oribe’s Bright Blonde product line. You’ll also want to see your stylist refresh your toner for a continuous blend and added shine.

#75: Silver to Platinum for Short Hair

This is a nice transitional platinum and silver look. It’s perfect for women who are apprehensive about going completely silver. For at-home care, use Olaplex treatments and take-home #3! Don’t do a platinum service without the add-on of Olaplex. Try the Joico Color Balance purple shampoo. Also, I recommend a good after-shower leave-in treatment. This is such a light hair color, and skin tone plays a big role in how it will look. A more neutral skin tone (not much warmth) works well for this color.

#76: Platinum to Honey Blonde

Consider icy winter platinum with soft beach waves. I love various products, but my favorite combo to create this look would be Redken Anti Snap before blowdrying, Aveda Air Control hairspray to add texture and hold, then finishing off with a little Global Keratin Serum for shine. I always reach for my Kenra blue-violet base lightener and my Framar brushes while creating a beachy balayage!

#77: Dark Platinum A-Line Bob

This rooted A-line platinum bob is great for all skin tones, and they can rock this look because the color has warm and cool tones in it. To achieve this color, I recommend the Wella Blondor Lightener and L’Oréal Dia Richesse 10.22 toner.

#78: Stunning Champagne Blonde Waves

Go for an icy white blonde with a soft, natural root shadow. It’s so blonde but considered low-maintenance.

Use a purple shampoo to extend the time between toners and touch-ups like Schwartzkopf Color Freeze. Also, I recommend a repairing conditioner to keep the ends soft and healthy. Biolage Repair Inside is a personal favorite. Ask your stylist to use a soft weave balayage technique to create this look. Work one inch from your scalp to preserve the natural root (unless you have gray hair) and tone with a bright, no ammonia toner.

#79: Short Platinum Ash Blonde

This short platinum ash blonde hair is a short, jawline blunt cut that stands out with the icy blonde. My favorite thing about this look is the icy white hair. Always take care of your hair. Lightening can cause a lot of damage to your hair if it’s not maintained properly. That means thermal protectants, sulfate-free shampoos, etc.

#80: Dimensional Blonde Tones

This is an icy balayage with platinum and blonde hues. My favorite thing about balayage is that it grows out and has a very sun-kissed effect. It’s a low-maintenance hair trend instead of an all-over white blonde that would have to be touched up every four weeks.

For at-home care, check out Davine’s color products. When going through the stages to get to the perfect blonde, it’s always important to keep the integrity of your hair. Depending on your hair’s history, it will be a process to recreate this look. Embrace the in-between stages and have a stylist you can trust not to push your hair beyond its limits.

#81: Surfer Ashy Blonde

This surfer ashy blonde color is bright without being over-processed. For products, try Rene Furterer. They’re a French company, and all its products are 90-100% natural and pharmaceutical-grade organic. With this look, I started with the Volume Mousse to add a base of volume at the roots. I then used their Control Emulsion Styling Cream for frizz control. The finishing touch is the Vegetal Texture Spray.

#82: Adorable Silver With Platinum Streaks

This silver color with platinum streaks proves there is a silver shade for everyone. Generally, cooler-toned skin best compliments extremely cool-toned hair. Ideally, double-process blondes should get a retouch every four to six weeks to avoid banding and breakage, but it can take multiple sessions to get this light in the first place.

#84: Smokey Platinum Blue Hair with Shadow Roots

This is a smoky blue shadow root with an icy blonde. I particularly like this look because it gives dimension to the blonde. Additionally, because it can become less maintenance if she were to grow out her natural hair color, it would blend in much easier.

This hair color is beautiful, but it does require maintenance. You can use a purple shampoo in-between visits to help it from turning too yellow, and get a toner every two months. You can add a reconstructive treatment to your hair regimen to keep the hair healthy.

#85: Platinum Hollywood Waves

Old Hollywood glamour is always in style, and platinum waves are the poster child. A striking, icy blonde paired with soft, ethereal waves perfectly balances this look. Pro Tip: if icy hues are your thing, invest in a bottle toning shampoo, like Joico’s Color Balance Purple.
